    Three weeks ago, goldman and roth moved target prices up to $165. Both at neutral/hold. AYI up 10% since then. What’s the next embarrassing move?

    How terrible are the sell side analysts? Even the aggressive ones had target prices around $140-$150. AYI blew through that yesterday and with good reason. High margins. Strong cash flow. Effective management. Will they up the targets? $180? $200? Germicidal UV lighting revenue expected in the current quarter. New source for growth.

    AYI lighting with 222nm UV excimer lamps would be extremely valuable for military fleets and submarines because they need to stay in closed environment for months. These would be necessary items even after Covid-19 epidemic. The PDF below is really worth reading to understand its potential.

    I sat on the fence for 3 weeks about joining (http://Stocks-tracker.com) for their weekly picks. Big mistake. (AYI) exploded and I completely missed out. Don’t make the same mistake I made. Join them today.

    AYI might be one of the longest lasting covid buys. Think about the opportunity in integrated UV lighting. It could easily become mandatory just as sprinkler systems are today. Every indoor gathering spot using UV during closed times to sanitize exposed areas. This could be years and years of sales

    CDC said in its recent release with regard to Operating schools that schools should consider using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) as a supplement to help inactivate SARS-CoV-2, especially if options for increasing room ventilation are limited. Acuity's new lightings may contribute to this soon?

    Cowen says AYI lost its top customer to a small competitior the CEO called a termite! He expects a mass exodus. Price target $50. All other analysts are positive. Any thoughts?

    acuity's new light with Care222 UVC illumination fits with the endorsement from the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists.
    To continuously and safely disinfect occupied indoor areas, researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center have been investigating far-UVC light (222 nm wavelength). Far-UVC light cannot penetrate the tear layer of the eye or the outer dead-cell layer of skin and so it cannot reach or damage living cells in the body. More than 99.9% of seasonal coronaviruses present in airborne droplets were killed when exposed to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light that is safe to use around humans.

    Surprised this went down today with what is ostensibly good news announced:
    Atlanta, Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announced today it has entered into strategic agreements with Violet Defense LLC (Violet Defense), an innovator of patented germicidal UV lighting technology that kills bacteria and inactivates viruses, and Puro Lighting, LLC (PURO), a lighting and technology company that uses Violet Defense technology to create UV disinfection* solutions for many different industries and categories....

    There is newly released info on the Care222 UVC light to be used for Acuity's new light series. I am very much positive that this light will help medical facilities safely reduce Covid-19 risks. Worth reading.

    AYI has developed UV lighting solutions to elegantly light buildings while killing any virus--this is going to boost their sales tremendously

    Neil Ashe and his accomplishments make me very confident Acuity will soon be at $300 per share.

    Big drop today before earnings report tomorrow means insiders and day traders are anticipating a negative report.
